1950-1970 Convertible Reinforcement Rail LH Heavy Duty German Made

Our 1950-1970 LH Heavy Duty Convertible Reinforcement Rails, German,  were designed to support the convertible body since it has no hard top to stabilize its form. The rails weld beneath the heater channel assemblies which are located directly below the doors. Examine your rails by looking under the car just inside where the running boards attach. Rails extend down two inches and have jack supports extending outward near the rear of the rails.

If your reinforcement rails are rusted or have damage, your heater channel will be exposed and likely to also have rust damage.

These German reinforcement rails are made from heavy gauge steel and include jack supports already installed. The rails are welded into an original form and are completely ready for installation.

Note: Rusted rails may cause your doors to close improperly or rattle on bumpy roads. To maintain the integrity of your car we highly recommend replacement of your damaged rails with our complete heavy duty Convertible Reinforcement Rails.

These are approx 66" x 5"

Please Note: Upon receipt, all body panels must be checked for fit. The nature of vintage cars is that there is normally some fitting, grinding or filling necessary to make new parts fit older and perhaps modified cars. This is normal and is not considered a valid reason to return a part.

Parts which have been modified or painted by the customer or their body shop are not eligible for return. If you are employing a body shop or paint shop, please make them aware of this.

These Replacement Vintage Air Cooled VW sheet metal panels are quality replacement parts produced by companies worldwide. These parts are delivered to us and then to you using ships, trains, trucks and local carriers. Scratches in the rust preventative paint (not considered primer) and minor dings are not unusual and cannot be prevents. Minor flaws are not considered damaged product.

If you have questions, please call prior to ordering. We will be glad to assist you in finding the proper parts for your VW.

Note: Minor repair may be required on some panels.
